Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana Letters Distribution
The Health and Family Welfare Department has directed all the district Collectors to ensure that the letter from Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is provided to all the 69,69,672 beneficiaries of the flagship health assurance scheme. Under the Biju Swasthya Kalyana Yojana, the state government ensures health care aid up to `5 lakh per family per annum and `7 lakh for women.
The Odisha Government has decided to implement the Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana after rejecting the Central Government’s Ayushman Bharat scheme, which is primarily an insurance model.
According to the modalities, the Chief Minister’s Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana Letters will be delivered to 44,08,070 enrolled beneficiaries under Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY) and 25,61,602 beneficiaries under Biju Krushak Kalyan Yojana (BKKY).
The Health & Family Welfare Department has directed the Collectors to form district level committees. They will be the chairmen of the six-member committee comprising executive officer/commissioner of local urban body.
These committees will review the progress of Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana Letters Distribution on a daily basis whereas the Collectors will send the compiled daily distribution report collected from Block Development Officers (BDOs) and communicate it to the State office. Apart from this, the department will also constitute a committee headed by the BDO concerned in all blocks.
The Block Development Officers (BDOs) will distribute the letters to the beneficiaries through village agriculture workers, Gram Rozgar Sathis, Anganwadi workers, Asha workers, revenue inspectors and village level workers.
